Cooperative Educaation

What is Co-op?

Cooperative Education provides secondary school students the ability to earn credits while working in a community outside of their school. The standard placement is a half-day 2-credit co-op but there are options to complete both a fuller day 3-credit and a 4-credit co-op as well. Students will have the opportunity to develop personal and workplace skills important to their career and life planning.


Why Should I Take Co-op?


“Test-driving” a Career: If you are curious about what a specific workplace is like, taking co-op allows you to get into the action and experience it for yourself!

Work Experience: If you know what kind of job you’d like, getting a co-op in the same field will allow you to gain experience while still in high school.

Experiential Learning: If you would like to get out of the classroom and simply learn by doing, a co-op will let you get out of a desk and into the world!
